A very interesting second set. Pity about that encore.

best of the weekend
84 is one of favorite years also Folkhippie. Saw some of my best shows then. This Cal Expo show I dig very much. The next day, though with a greater set list and some folks think was better is very sloppy and flawed playing imo. I actually recorded it when I was there on a Walkman and recorded over it because I thought it wasn't worth listening to again

The sound in this tape isn't superb, but Jerry is on fire throughout this show. His health might have been failing, but he could really burn up Tiger's fretboard during the '84 - '85 tours. His voice is semi-haggard here, but better than other nights.
Bobby began experimenting with a strange effects pedal that made his guitar sound like a steel drum set. To be honest, it sounded like shit. See this night's "Dupree's Diamond Blues" for Weir at his worst haha! Jerry's tone, on the other hand, is magnificent. Punchy, clean, and fueled by power. '84 is one of my favorite years for Jerry's sound.
